About Radiator Fan Cowlings
A cars radiator is a central part of the engines cooling system. Responsible for removal of heat from the engine coolant, the radiator system cools the liquid by allowing fresh external air to pass over a network of thin pipes, losing heat to the atmosphere.
The radiator is mounted across the front of the engine bay, where it is exposed to fresh air passing in through the front grille. A <Model> radiator fan cowling ensures that the airflow is directed over the radiator funnelled fresh air onto the radiators cores. Additionally the <Model> radiator fan cowling houses a fan which allows for additional airflow when required.
Due to heat exposure the radiator fan cowling can become brittle over time and should be replaced if any significant damage is sustained to ensure efficient cooling action of the radiator is maintained.
Alfa Romeo trivia
- Alfa is an acronym, standing for Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili, but few people are aware of where the word Romeo came from. It’s actually the surname of the Italian engineer Nicola Romeo, who bought the company as WWI was raging.
- One of the most famous onscreen appearances of an Alfa Romeo was in the James Bond film Octopussy when the superspy stole a graphite GTV6. The car brand shows up again in Quantum of Solace, racing against Bond’s Aston Martin.
- Due to tax shenanigans, the very first Alfa-branded car was named the 24HP, even though it came with a 25 horsepower 4.1-litre engine. It was quick and could do a satisfying 62mph, despite having wooden spoke wheels.
- The Italian Job was famous for its use of the Mini Cooper, but the police in the film might very well have beaten Michael Caine on the flat with their Alfa Giulia Supers.
- US President John F. Kennedy was a big fan of the Alfa Romeo, and would often be seen racing on Washington streets in his Alfa Romeo Giuletta Spider.
